We'd never heard of whisker fatigue until last year when we came across a post on Facebook about this unique bowl. Mom Paula reached out to Dr. Catsby's to see if we could try the bowl because Brulee was exhibiting a majority of the signs of whisker fatigue in cats and Mom Paula was having difficulty getting Brulee to eat her wet food. Look at the signs of whisker fatigue below to determine if your cat could have this problem with eating.

If your cat is exhibiting some of the signs of whisker fatigue, then the Dr. Catsby's bowl is for you. The bowls are made of a stainless steel finish and are wide and shallow. The design of the bowl allows easy access to our food without causing our whiskers to be pulled back, causing discomfort. The wide and shallow eating surface allows the food to fall to the center of the bowl, but still provides enough of an edge to prevent food from being pushed out of the bowl (Brulee does this all the time in other bowls). The stainless steel finish helps protect against wash-proof bacteria and is dishwasher safe and includes a cutaway in the side for easy lifting from the rubber mat. The bowl is placed on a rubber mat, which keeps it from moving around when we eat from it. An additional benefit of this bowl for Brulee is that she can see Truffle coming since her face isn't pressed inside the bowl and therefore, will eat with less fear of being "invaded" by her greedy sister.

Both Truffle and Brulee continue to love eating from the Dr. Catsby's bowl. In fact, Brulee has eaten almost every bit of her food and isn't making a mess on the floor like she did in the past. She appears more comfortable eating close to Truffle, which makes mealtime much less stressful. The bowl retails for $19.99, which isn't a bad price, considering the stainless steel bowl is resilient to bacteria, easy to clean, and raised high enough off the floor to make eating a little healthier for your cat.
